My name is Mark Evans Dm and I want to say Thank
You to all who have participated and continue to participate in the
projects that I offer and will continue to offer.
I wanted to give you an excerpt from an email that
my friend Doug sent me that I would like to share with you before you
"On this day in the countryside of
Cap Haitian, Haiti the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere life
was given to a whole community of people. Ange Village (Village of
Angels) was dedicated. The generosity of donors to The Caring House
Project Foundation brought education, shelter, sanitation, clean water and the
possibility of self-sustainability to a large number of children and
Hope was given to many who may have
been at the brink of despair; shelter to many who may have been sleeping
under cardboard and plastic; clean water and toilets to many who have
lived with the illnesses that come from their absence, dignity to many
who have never been able to earn themselves a living; and, most
importantly, education to as many as 500 children who would surely have
been condemned by ignorance to repeat the horrible cycle of poverty that
has ensnared their families for many generations.
On this day we were able to witness
the possibility of Hope where so much despair exists."

Ange Village (Village of Angels)
Built by donations from The Caring House Project Foundation & Frank
McKinney's visiting donors - a complete, self-sustaining village like
this for 500 people
(and it only costs $400,000 +/- to build and supply)

Frank is overwhelmed at the crowd there to meet us and formally
dedicate the Village
There were over 600 in attendance on this 90+ degree day. The
woman in the hat and black shirt is Kelli Kennedy with the Associated
Press (she was with us for the day).
Her story about our trip is being published in newspapers around the
Arch Bishop Hubert Constant leading the dedication service.
The Church helped choose the children & families to live in the
new Village and is part of the support system for the Village.
The lady that donated her family's land to build the Village - she
will continue to live in the Village and oversee it's operations.
Frank McKinney & Caring House Project donors receive a gift from the Village
residents, which was a beautiful painting of the Village.
Frank McKinney and two children cut the ribbon to dedicate the Ange
Children are very happy to greet us - many are orphans and used to
live in the dump.
Now they have homes, education, food & medical care in Ange Village.
Children lined up to shake our hands and say "mese" (like "merci"),
which is "thank you," in creole this was a very overwhelming
feeling going threw the children with there hands out just wanting to

nieces back home in Ohio when I saw these two little girls running
around holding hands.
Ange Village's goal is to be self-sufficient - eggs from
these chickens will be used for food and will be sold.
Chicken area (eating chickens are being delivered soon).
Goats & other animals as well as a talapia fish farm are also planned.
Food for the Village (and to be sold) create funds to purchase other
